This is the big day! Rather, evening! It’s Halloween!
It is the night before the Christian holy day of All Saints Day.
In days of old, hallows was an interchangeable word with saints. They meant the same. Today was called All Hallow’s Eve. Over time, All Hallow’s Eve became shortened to Halloween.
Halloween’s beginnings are clouded. There is no certainty as to time and where. Many different stories. Suffice to say, Halloween has both Pagan and Christian roots. Its date of beginning covers centuries.
When I was young, my father walked with me as I went door to door tricking or treating. I did the same with my four children. I used to stand in the shadows on the street as they went to the doors.
Lisa does the same with Robert and Ally. I generally join them. Not tonight. Bocce.
I worry when driving Halloween night. Key West children are all over the place. In the roads, also. Lighting is not the best in Key West nor Key Haven where I live. Caution is the order of the day.
Great baseball game last night! I rarely watch baseball. I did last night. Glad I did. I was particularly impressed with the third or fourth inning where Boston got all those runs. I felt bad for St. Louis. Even with 2 out, Boston kept getting hits. St. Louis had to be saying mentally…..guys, stop…..get it over with!
My day out consisted of a trip to the bank. An exciting day.
I spent time preparing for my TV/internet show tomorrow. The Key West Lou Legal Hour. A ton of topics. The problem this week is selection. So much has happened.
I plan on stressing poverty a bit. I feel its is exploding in our country. Plus, some NSA observations including bugging the new Pope, General Motor’s continued screwing of the American public, an example of why Golf Channel analyst Brande Chamblee is an ass, additional shocking examples of governmental waste, and more.
The show is 10 in the morning my time. Airs on television Key West through Boca Raton on Comcast Channel 87 and U-Verse Channel 19. Airs on the internet worldwide. www.weyw19.com.
Also You Tubed in case you miss the show.
I bought a printer at Office Max more than a year ago. A fancy one with all of the buttons. I should have purchased the cheap one. I have never been able to make it work. Nor has Sloan nor anyone else I asked to help.
I went to a pro yesterday. A nerd. Within minutes the machine was operational. Amazing!
I have been dieting again. The story of my life. Up and down for 50 years. I know, not healthy.
I started a different type diet this time. I am just cutting back. Eating little. Around 1,000 calories a day. Walking, also. Though still not as much as I should.
I feel like a good boy. I have lost 10 pounds in 16 days.
Enjoy your day!
